Re: Goodness he doesn't realise!!

I happen to have owned the Olympus XZ-1 briefly. I tested it for some self portraits with a remote shutter release. While I am pleased with some shallow DOF at full telephoto end at f2.5 on the XZ-1, I am happier with the shallower DOF on my current X10 at same 112mm at f2.8 than the XZ-1. I like the detail on the X10, whereas I couldn't control the noise on the XZ-1. It has been "ages" and so I do not know if Olympus has issued firmware update to enable users to control noise on the XZ-1.

I stumbled upon this thread while looking for user samples on X10's DOF especially portraits.

The only thing is that I wish Fujifilm had been generous to include an IR receiver to wirelessly control shutter for self portraits.
